Stability Of Rectangular Plates By Arbitrary Deflection Method, James Arthur Jones Jan 1959

#### Stability Of Rectangular Plates By Arbitrary Deflection Method, James Arthur Jones

##### Masters Theses

"Many engineering structures use thin rectangular plates as members. These plates may be loaded and supported in numerous ways. The edges may be freely supported, rigidly supported, or supported by elastic members. The load may be applied normal to the plane of the plate, in which case the problem becomes essentially one of bending. If the load is applied in the plane of the plate, placing it in compression, the problem becomes one of stability.

This investigation is concerned with the stability of plates rigidly supported on all edges and having a compressive load applied to two opposite edges of ...

Steady State Temperature Distribution In A Rotating Disk, George Henry Morgan Jan 1959

#### Steady State Temperature Distribution In A Rotating Disk, George Henry Morgan

##### Masters Theses

"The purpose of this investigation was to obtain an expression for the steady state temperature distribution of a disk of uniform thickness rotating at a constant speed in ambient air while absorbing heat through the periphery at a constant rate. Engineers encounter such problems in connection with brakes of several varieties. The general solution obtained here could be extended to similar physical problems such as grinding wheels, disk clutches, and so on.

A differential equation was obtained for the temperature in the disk by the application of Fourier's conduction law and Newtonâ€™s convection law. A solution of this ...

Unsteady State Heat Transfer From A Hot Body To A Liquid, Larry Clinton Atha Jan 1959

#### Unsteady State Heat Transfer From A Hot Body To A Liquid, Larry Clinton Atha

##### Masters Theses

"The problem investigated in this thesis is that of unsteady state heat transfer from a hot body to a liquid, a quenching problem. Unsteady state or transient heat transfer is heat transfer in which the temperature distribution changes with time.

If a hot body was suddenly quenched in a large mass of liquid, a film of vapor would form between the hot body and the liquid. For example, if a hot body was quenched in water a film of steam would form between the hot body and the water. It is the purpose of this thesis to determine the heat ...
